Ticket FAQ


Timed Ticketing


What are timed tickets?
Timed tickets are general admission tickets issued for a specific date and arrival time. Tickets have entry times that begin every hour. With a timed ticket, a limited number of guests enter during each hour for shorter lines and a better guest experience.
What is included with my ticket?
Timed tickets are for general garden admission only and offer you 42 acres and over 300 sculptures to explore plus up to five rotating indoor exhibitions. You may also sign up for a free walking tour when you arrive at the Welcome Center INFO desk. Call before you visit to check our daily scheduled tour times.
Do Members, Library Pass holders, or Guest Pass holders need a timed ticket?
Members, Library Pass holders and Guest Pass holders do not require a timed ticket and may enter at anytime we are open. Please note: Mother's Day does require a free member reservation and guest passes are not accepted on that day.
What times are tickets available?
Tickets are available to purchase each hour from 10 AM to one hour before closing.
Where do I check-in when I arrive?
Tickets are checked in at the Welcome Center Admissions desk. After check-in, you will receive wristbands to walk the grounds. Please note, you may be asked to have your tickets scanned at the entrance booth during peak hours.
What if we arrive late after our scheduled entry time?
Grounds For Sculpture will make every effort to accommodate late arrivals, but if no tickets are available, you may have to return when the next time slot is available.
What if we arrive early?
For the best possible experience, we recommend you arrive within your scheduled hour. Early arrivals may not be admitted.
Do we have to leave at a specific time?
No, timed tickets apply to arrival times only and you may stay as long as we are open.
We didn't know about timed tickets, will we be admitted?
Grounds For Sculpture will make all efforts to accommodate you, but if all time slots are sold out, you may need to return on another day to visit.
How far in advance should I buy my tickets? What happens if it rains?
Tickets can be purchased online the same day up to one hour before you visit while still available. Please note that weekends and holidays with favorable weather may sell quickly and advanced purchase is recommended. Please plan accordingly for the weather when purchasing tickets. Tickets are non-refundable and may not be exchanged.
What happens if I do not receive my tickets?
Tickets are sent by email. If you do not receive an acknowledgement with your ticket link, please check your spam folder. If you still can not find your tickets, please email or call (609)-586-0616.
Can I get a refund or exchange my tickets for another day?
All sales are final. Tickets are non-refundable and may not be exchanged for another date and time.
Can I apply my tickets to a Membership?
